  2. Thank you for your kind thoughts @Pipp and @satindoll Sadly I will be unable to put myself up for the vote as I will be washing my hair or something.

    I do agree though that @Enclave would be a great candidate as he is a fine example to newbies as a T2 in remission. He was also keen last time.

    I also second that @satindoll and @Pipp would make great mods too as they are sensible, good eggs @CaptainWard

    As with @Squire Fulwood thanks for the consideration @satindoll, but like the last time this happened I must respectfully decline due to too many other things going on and not being able to give this the attention it deserves.

    Thanks @satindoll .... but time zones make it an impossibility to mediate in a timely manner before others assumed that duty way ahead of me. Do appreciate the thought though :)

    I don't think I have been here long enough to be able to vote . Would it be fair for me to vote ? I think not . I do not feel I could make an informed choice

    However I have to say the support shown by the existing moderators has been amazing ! What lovely caring people . My inbox has been crammed with advice help and concern . They are lovely!!

    Also @Bluetit1802 as been helpful in every one of my posts and @Alison Campbell !! I don't really know anyone else

    Don't be concerned Soo, voting isn't compulsory. When the time comes, feel free to vote if you would like to, or don't vote if you feel more comfortable that way.

    @13lizanne Thanks for thinking of me though I think I would make a rather immoderate moderator. I would do it if asked of course but don't think that's very likely to happen.

    Any way the incumbent moderators I think should carry on and had thought that they would automatically be counted as nominated already.

    @CaptainWard - can you please remove my name from the list as I've declined the nomination?

    Also, I think @Enclave was nominated but hasn't been included.

    Thanks :)
